More fun with dictionaries...

Ah, so many letters, so many combinations, so easy to confuse. I was recently looking at the news in Azerbaijani and saw the category təhlil and thought, what's that - education? Wrong! Education is təhsil. The other word means analysis. And looking it up only proved that there are even more words to confuse one that begin with təh-

təhər - mode, manner, way, method
təhkim - attachment
təhqiq - investigation
təhqir - insult
təhlil - analysis
təhrif - distortion
təhrik - instigation
təhsil - education
təhvil - surrender

Which leads me to the subject of easily confused words... See my next post.
